    I truly believe that Ty Warren being placed on IR will ignite a major fire under Mr. Brace. I know alot of people are somewhat down on Brace, I'm not, like I had stated in another post, I saw enough in the Buffalo game to see the value that Brace can bring to this line.

    He's huge, he's stout and he'll hold his ground on the run and I feel, with reps, he will begin to collapse the pocket the more he plays. I feel he has alot of upside and I think he's going to take full advantage of this situation that has just presented itself with Ty Warren's opening.

    I can't wait to watch him Thursday night.

    Same here. Hopefully he shows more vs. the run against the first string than Damione Lewis did against the second string. I'm not sure why people have been down on Brace. I thought he looked pretty decent after the first series against Buffalo as well. I'll keep a close eye on him as well.

    If Ron learns to seize the salad bar he may well end up being better than even he thought he could be.

    Re: Ron Brace will seize the moment !

    Careful with that enthusiasm towards him, don't you know Riddler that he is a bust after one season?!?!?!

    Or so that is what people have been whining about since last year :rolleyes:


    He will play and he will play well but because he isn't an every down starter blowing guys off the line sacking every down he will get ridiculed until he leaves town :rolleyes:

    Re: Ron Brace will seize the moment !

    Brace will be forever compared with the 6th rounder DL the patriots drafted in the same year as Brace. Is it fair to compare the player we chose at #40 to the one we chose at #207 in the same draft?

    Ones a 4-3 tackle, the others a NT project and possible run stuffing 3-4 end backup.

    If our ton of low round, FA DLs were more ready or talented, they might both be cut, but they probably both stay.

    Brace fits our D better but has signs of being a total washout.

    Pryor doesn't fit our D well at all, but is the kind of player you love, adds some inside rush potential in sub packages and gives a hell of an effort at NT, which he is ill suited for on a regular basis in the NFL. Too bad he isn't taller, as we need some backup ends.

    I agree 100% with this analysis.

    I'm certainly not ready to call the man a bust just yet, but it doesn't look good to me. He's on the cusp . . .

    If Brace does pan out, thats alot of mass up front. Warren - 325, Wilfork - 325 and Brace - 330. Maybe we can get them a few double stackers from KFC and get the total up to 1000 lbs.

    I can only hope this optimism is founded. The emergence of Brace as an adequate starter would be key to the overall functionality of this defense. The Pats have survived patchwork lines in the past, but it scares me.

    It could be worse, the Pats got Julian Edelman at #232 and the Raiders got Darrius Heyward-Bey at #7 overall.

    That always makes me laugh.

    Since Brace has made it onto the practice field, the reviews I have seen have been positive for the most part. He seems to be fast for his size and holding his own.

    I think Brace could be a victim of the Pats cone of silence on injuries. I remember about 5 years ago Willie Mac complaining that since he was injured at the start of camp people thought he failed the conditioning run because the Pats lumped him in with the guys who actually did on the inactives in practice without explaination. Brace may be victim of the same perception especially because of his size and his struggle to get on the active roster last year.

    That number in particular seems laughable; I would bet that those three are already over 1000 combined.

    I hope and pray that you are correct, more than I can describe. However, I don't think he will end up justifying where he was picked. PLEASE let me be wrong.

    I thought the same thing. My initial thought was that he probably pulled his hamstring during his initial test. The reason was that the reports were glowing coming out of the off-season period and the fact that his play picked up toward the end of last season. That didn't seem the same as the Crable-esque disappearance of well...Crable.

    My prediction is that Brace 'aint seizing sh*t but an order of large fries and a Dr. Suess book. In the off-season, Brace said he didn't have a grasp on the mental side of things - this year I have received no indication that his head is together. You'd think he's work on that seeing that he himself said it was an issue. He is a lazy, unmotivated, uncomitted doofus and I think he has replaced my hate for the Dancing Bear (Lo-Mo)

    Aren't you the person who decided he was dumb for what he posts on his Twitter account, as if even if that were the case, it would preclude him from being a good player in the NFL? On what basis are you claiming that he's lazy, unmotivated, and uncommitted?

    Yeah. As you said, at least it cut down on your overwrought Maroney whining.

    So I guess you are a defender now. You always go off on me for not liking the mediocrity known as Laurence Maroney. Now you're defending Ron Brace.

    ...on the basis that he took so long to pass the conditioning test, that he said he was not mentally prepared last year and that seems to ring true this year too. Come to camp in shape and mentally tough. If you are neither of these things - you are lazy, immature and unmotivated. It's pretty simple, really.

    If it makes you feel any better, I still think Maroney is garbage.
